Stephen Gostkowski kicked a 46 yard field goal in the second quarter to give the Patriots a 3-0 lead, which was the score at the half.

Nothing was clicking for the Rams until they got into Patriots territory in the third quarter but, were unable to find the end zone following a sack by Don’ta Hightower. Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein kicked a 53 yard field goal to level the score at 3-3.

In the fourth quarter Tom Brady connected on throws to Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski, including one that went for 29 yards (which was the longest play of the game) to set up a Sony Michel, two-yard touchdown run to give the Patriots a 10-3 lead. The Rams got into New England territory once again but Jared Goff was intercepted by Stephon Gilmore at the 4 yard line. The Patriots would kick one more field goal to put the game away at 13-3 which was the final score.

• Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman was named Super Bowl MVP after registering 10 catches for 141 yards.
